A FALSE IMPRESSION. .
Cove Creek, N. C. June 22, 1925.
The Carolina Mountaineer:
1 wish to state that there have been
false rumors against the doctors of
Waynesville, by . opponents of the
hospital bonds. The story goes, that
they performed an operation on me,
and finding nothing the matter; did
not charge me any hospital bill. There
is hot a word of truth in this, as the
hospital records and a receipted bill
for expenses will show.
While stating these facts, I also
wish to say a few words in regard to
the hospital. I am thoroughly in
favor of it, because it has already
been enough help to my neighbors and
myself, to make me see the help and
convenience such an institution would
be to the people of the county.
The time has now come, when the
country doctor will be a thing of the
past, and the people will have to go
to the doctor, instead of the doctor
going to the people.
How many of the poor people in
the "sticks" have cars to take them
to Asheville, and how many of them
could get the money to pay their
bills at those high priced hosptals?
And in case of accident or other emer
gency, how many would die before
reaching Asheville? My son is an
example. He was crushed by a log
at 3 p. m. and it took about ten men
till midnight to get him to Waynes
ville. He was almost dead then and
would certainly have died if we would
have had to take him 'Asheville. He
stayed in the hospital at Waynesville
twelve week. He received good treat,
ment and is now sound and well.
I stayed in an Asheville hospital
eight days in December and it cost me
as much as the twelve weeks my son
stayed at Waynesville.
I also underwent an operation on
the eighth of May at Waynesville,
stayed in the hospital 21 days. My
bill was very little more than for the
eight days days ot Asheville. I got
no relief at Asheville, except was re
lieved of $147.00 cash. The operation
and treatment I received at Waynes-1
ville have helped me, until I believe
I am going to get well and strong!
Of course there are men in the coun
ty whom the neople have elected to
office and helped to make a portion of
what they have., who have now forgot.
ten the people who stood by them
They have money to go to Baltimore
or any other hospital they please, but
never think of the people who helped
them, and who would have to die like
dogs for want of medical attention.
Who did Christ say our neighbor
was? Read Luke 10 chapter, 30 to 37
verses. It i8 NOT the man who pass-l
es hv on the other side hut the one
who helps those who are not so for-
tunate as himself.
In 1st John. 3:14. we find: "We!
know we have passed from death unto
life because we love the brethren. He
that loveth not his brother abideth in
How much are we going to love our
brother? A few dollars worth, or
with a few words ? What is the first
and great commendment? Matt. 19:-36-39.
"Thou shalt love the Lord thy
God with all thv heart and with all
they soul and with all they mind."
And the second is like unto it. "Thou
snail love tny neignoor as tnyseu. j.g
i ... . . .it . i i i
nno is my neignouri i icei uiai
it is any one who needs my help.
I have been sick for 15 months and
would have given everything I had
to be well again. Life is sweet to me,
and brother, sister, did you ever think
that the other fellow's life is just u
sweet to him as yours is to you.
Then think about it. and make up your
